TALES OF ABSTRACT

"Tales of the Abstract", a piece for a younger audience, takes us to one of the most irresistible territories of dance, of pure gesture, which interprets itself and opens itself in infinite possibilities of movement. The meeting point between form and emotions, unique place between the audience and the dancer, where the connection to the spectator becomes unique, fleeting, sincere.
Without an obvious narrative, communication intensifies only through the body that translates by movement a defined theme or concept.
The gesture doesn't want to be a word, it just wants to be an intent.
Abstract dance builds, destroys, rebuilds and thus frees itself from time and form, allowing us to find new places of human essence.
